Available Dogs - Simon


Simon was regretfully and hopefully given to rescue by a loving home because he needs to find a great new home without young children. Simon is great with adults, other dogs and fine with cats. Simon is either a golden retriever mix or a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever mix. Either way, he is just so cute and fun! In his foster home he plays with polite dogs and is so adorable doing it.

Simon's favorite thing is to wander the yard, doing some sniffing and sunbathing. He takes a few minutes to warm up to people, and can be shy about having his head touched. He really loves a butt scratch! Once he knows you, he's great with being petted all over and is very affectionate. He's not the biggest fan of being brushed but is reportedly good at the groomer. 

Simon is crate- and house-trained. He has great house manners and is a chill dog who is a great companion and is always ready to go for a walk when you are. 

Simon is looking for a calm adults-only home, with or without fur siblings. Is that you?
